Having Thunar detached from Xfce it could allow us to uninstall Thunar in favor of Caja..

In my OpenBSD 7.5, xfce-4.18.1, after the upgrade the Characters Map / Special Characters utility was missing both graphically, in the menu, and on disk.

Reinstalled manually Char Map after the upgrade with:

pkg_add gucharmap

About Caja:

Not only Caja brings in some basic security features, but being based on Nautilus it enables also some operational tricks. Example, working on the filesystem we get the Undo (Ctrl+Z).

Installed 7.5:

From a first glance last version of Badwolf, ver 1.2.2p2 has various
problems, firsts in list:

- jquery ui doesn't run properly, when I start using a webapp coded
to consume this library, jquery ui goes in "log mode" only;

- I can't create more GitHub repositories.

I then cleaned my OpenBSD system with a "pkg_delete -a", deleting all the
unused library from 7.4 and now Badwolf is behaving correctly both on
Github and with jQuery UI.

Hope this eventually help someone.

About security again.

Just adding a simple evidence: dark mode is difficult to print.

If you are dedicating time to web browser and email client development
in OpenBSD.. I suggest to point antennas on dark mode too..

Caja or Mousepad suppress the text editing features or have a readonly mode.

Giving a default readonly *splash* or mode to all our software when unattended
could probably help in dissuading keystroke injection kind of attacks.

I tried to port my dev environment from Xfce to Mate and here some of my thoughts:

1) Mate is much lighter, eg tcl/tk software go up like a twist;
2) by multi screens the porting is a true adventure cause Mate doesn't come with a
"Display utility", all the screen configuration happens by xrandr;
3) the software that accompaign Mate is few or doesnt run, eg the power management
utility doesnt function or I can't set my custom 5 Mode background (the background utility
doesnt pop up);
4) the context menu by right clicking anywhere on the desktop has no application menu

I passed a full night with Mate (..) but for now I was happy to come
back to my steps and restore Xfce, although performances seem very

TIP: Dealing with nano (or vi editor as well) you can simplify the opening of long file names just using a strategic wildcard, eg:

having date-uuid-blog101.txt

"nano *blog101.txt" is your shortcut.

OpenBSD doens't have HDMI audio support yet.

Monitor's speakers prb could rest in peace.

OpenBSD 7.4 is now supporting the Unicode encoding at system level, including the Chinese language.

Just wonder to have in your .xinitrc (or in .xsession for xenodm) this:

export LC_CTYPE=zh_CN.UTF-8
